No Monkey Business Here

Sunday mornings are great for trying new recipes. Today it was a simple and tasty monkey bread. It was very easy to make.


4 12-ounce cans regular-size flaky biscuits (such as Pillsbury)
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Sweet  Cinnamon Sauce
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional, but very tasty)


·       Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
·       Combine 2/3 cup of sugar and 1 T. cinnamon in a gallon size Ziploc bag or shallow baking dish.
·       Cut biscuits into quarters and cover with cinnamon-sugar.
·       Place the cinnamon-sugar-coated balls in a greased Bundt pan, sprinkling some of the cinnamon-sugar over the balls occasionally while filling the bunt pan.
·       Melt the butter with the remaining 1/3 cup sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, or in the microwave until sugar and cinnamon dissolves. Add the chopped nuts.
·       Pour the melted butter mixture over the top of the biscuits balls in the Bundt pan.
·       Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top of the bread is golden and caramelized.
·       Remove from the oven and let sit at least 10 minutes.
·       Unmold the Monkey Bread onto a cake plate.

Slice and serve.

Yield: Approximately 12 servings

I think next time I will add pecans to enhance the flavor and texture.
